You can use generalized pattern matching expressions like:
bgp_path ~ [= * 1234 * =]
(that matches any path containing 1234, see  section bgpmask for details).
or faster first/last expressions like:
bgp_path.first = 1234
bgp_path.last = 1234
that checks first/last ASN in the AS path.
These expressions can be used in import/export filters (in 'if' expressions) and can be also used in 'show route' commands to filter routes to show:
show route where bgp_path ~ [= * 1234 * =]

The expression is:
(1000,1234) ~ bgp_community
